What is an Anterior Rollator Walker?
An anterior rollator walker is a walker that is placed in front of the user, so that the person can see the entire walker, and lean forward in order to use it. Many people claim that it feels more secure to use an anterior walker, since it is within the user’s range of vision, and he feels like he has more control over it. Others dislike the fact that the walker is in front of them, and sort of in the way.
More elbow and wrist exertion (specifically of the elbow extensors, which are the muscles on the inside of the arm that help the arm extend outward, and the wrist flexors, which are the muscles that cause the wrist to bend) is required when using an anterior walker.
When walking with an anterior walker, patients were noted to propel themselves at a faster pace, taking longer strides at a time, then they would typically when walking independently.
Who Can Use an Anterior Walker?
An anterior walker is ideal for those who simply need a lot of standing or walking support, and find maneuvering the posterior walker to be untenably complicated. Someone who needs to keep weight off of one leg will also need to use an anterior walker.
